not so much before the attacks. does this cold war mentality that president obama talked about still hamper relations between the u.s. and russia? >> it appears to have been a problem in this case but really shouldn't. we've had relations with countries around the world which have been pretty rocky and yet on the counterterrorism level, it's been very, very good cooperation. even when i was in office at times that some other countries were not necessarily seeing eye to eye on iraq or other issues, at the law enforcement level there was always a lot of exchange of information because it's mutually important. this is important to the russians as it is to us. i would put some emphasis on making sure that our relationships with the russians or anybody else at this level are being maintained properly and so there is a good flow of cooperation. >> i've heard talk that one of the reasons why it might not have gone as swimmingly as it should have is because russia is always trying to convince the u.s. that the chechens with whom they're involved in this ugly, bloody war for years and years,

importance to mexicans, also very important domestically to americans and president obama talked about that saying there's an economic imperative to tackling reform. >> i think it's important for everybody to remember that our shared border is more secure than it's been in years. illegal immigration attempts in the united states are near their lowest level in decades. and legal immigration continues to make both of our countries stronger and more prosperous, and more competitive. and this in part reflects the economic progress and greater opportunities here in mexico. i think this progress should help inform the debate in the united states, and i'm optimistic that we're finally going to get comprehensive immigration reform passed. >> president obama will deliver a speech here this morning and meet with mexican entrepreneurs and then it's to his second and final stomp on this mini-tour that he's doing of latin america. he'll be going to san jose, costa rica. there he'll join a summit of heads of state from central american nations as well as the dominican republic. a top concern for tho

republicans don't want to give president obama any sort of victory? here to talk aboutt associated editor for the hill newspaper amy stoddard former national spokesman for the white house, president obama's white house tommy vetor and former adviser to mitt romney's presidential campaign kevin madden. kevin, not surprising, i'm going to start with you. >> really? >> even though 80%, 90% of the country supports this legislation and it was up for a vote, toomey is suggesting although i understand he has back tracked a little since that statement, suggesting it really just came down to republicans didn't want to give obama a victory. >> look. the kind of politics you see in washington, d.c. is absurd. as sure as dogs will bark in a tunnel politicians in washington, d.c. are going to play politics. this did come down to policy in the minds of many opposed to the bill. some folks said that we're proponents, believed it was good policy and those opposed believed it was bad policy. at the heart of a lot of opposition on an issue that is so important like the second amendment to many people is th
and the bombing suspect. does the obama administration want to strike a deal that spares his life? i'll talk about that with the former director of national intelligence in just a moment. i will also ask him about president obama defending the fbi's handling of the boston bombing investigation, insisting there was no intelligence breakdown. listen to what the president said. >> the russian intelligence services had alerted u.s. intelligence about the older brother as well as the mother, indicating that they might be sympathizers to extremists. the fbi investigated that older brother. it's not as if the fbi did nothing. >> the president is also responding to senator lindsey gra graham who is comparing boston to benghazi, saying the ultimate blame falls on the white house. tonight, along with female dna, one fingerprint has been found on the boston bomb debris. a short time ago we learned the attorney for tamerlan tsarnaev's widow says the remains will be released to the family and she is cooperating fully with law enforcement. tonight for the first time, the suspect's carjacking victim named danny

. we have big problems with the budget and the economy and we're talking about background checks as if it matters. it doesn't matter that much. and all of the passion it and all of the focus that president obama decided to make on this issue, i do think was political exploitation. he hadn't talked about gun issues one bit during his campaign. i think this was a huge political mistake on the part of the president. >> do you think he's lost a lot of political capital? do you think this was a mistack to use as capital in this way? >> well, you know what, it matters to 90% of the american people. so you want to call that being political, that's fine. we have problems around the world. guess where else we have problems? newtown, connecticut, aurora, colorado, we have a lot of problems here. that's why all of these senators that voted against background checks are seeing their numbers plum et and the senators that had the courage to vote for it are seeing their numbers come up. there's a reason why pat toomey said the reason republicans didn't vote for it is because they didn't want to
think the reason there are so many folks talking about the possibility of government tyranny is threefold really. the obama administration's increasing reliance on big government. i think it's folks like alex jones who did this routine where every time they shut down a city like boston it's the end of the world and military law. and honestly, i think folks like you, piers because, you know, you go out of your way to really give the impression that you're interested in taking away people's fundamental right to bear arms and i think that scares a lot of folks. >> i'm not against the right to bear arms, i'm seriously against the right of having military style assault weapons to blow people away in a school. >> you said you're against assault weapons, but handguns kill 6,000 a year. >> they're both a big problem. mass shootings. >> you're from the uk, why don't we go with a full gun ban. >> we discussed it, the uk has 40, 50 gun murders a year, the u.s. has 12,000. let's move on. >> i'm glad you finally have your agenda out there. >> let's turn to jason collins. this is the sport
reaction to what's happened here? >> reporter: well, nobody's talking about it publicly, you know, but president obama is literally getting asked about syria every day, and again today, with this racheting up of tensions, the president once again said you know, no prospect that he can see of putting u.s. ground troops into syria. but he's not ruling out any options. have a listen to what he had to say. >> if in fact we see strong evidence that we can present and that allows us to say that the syrian military and the syrian government is using chemical weapons, then that is a game changer for us. >> reporter: a game changer. no ground troops, but still keeping all the other options on the table, but it looks like the israelis have decided pretty much they're not waiting around. the israelis as you know have a very strong policy. what they are looking at striking is any weapons that they believe the syrians are going to try and get out of the country to keep safe, transfer to hezbollah across the border in lebanon, and in fact, we got a statement from the israelis not exactly confir
killer amanda knox is facing out as she faces retrial. susan page joins us to talk about her in depth interview. >>> support is pouring in tonight for jason collins' decision for coming out. the 7 foot center has had support from president obama, other greats. the characterization quote that collins' coming out party was a joyous affair was a little bit optimistic. he's gotten a dose of negative interaction. he'll talk about the journey he's been on with george stephanopoulos. >> they talk about the 12 steps, you go through anger, denial. you know, it's just -- but when you finally get to that point of acceptance, there's nothing more beautiful than just allowing yourself to, you know, really be happy and be comfortable in your own skin. >> as i said, that decision to be open about who he is did not come without a measure of condemnation by some but the detractors seem outnumbered by others including filmmaker, spike lee, joins me now. despite his decision to come out, were you surprised by it? what do you make of it? >> i wasn't surprised. the day is coming. the world is changing, an
a clear baseline of facts, and we've also called on united nations to investigate. >> wolf talked about the president's syrian policy with a former senior adviser to the obama state department and author of a new book called the indispensable nation, critical of the administration's handling of foreign affairs. wolf began asking about the words the president didn't use. >> what do you make of this, vali? >> the president is very deliberate thinking about whether or not he is going to punish the assad regime for use of chemical weapons. there's a lot on the line. if it is proved chemical weapons were used, they would have to act militarily to punish the regime, if they don't, the international credibility is at stake. it is also important what the president didn't say. he did not show a road map how the united states would get involved diplomatically in terms of a no fly zone, economically to address the myriad of problems arising in syria from the spread of al qaeda influence, extremism, humanitarian crisis. basically he says the united states only will get involved if it is to punish t
in the federal medical facility had been talking but still trying to work out whether he will continue to talk to investigators now that he's been read his rights. wolf? >> so they now have a fingerprint and they have dna -- that's a good start in this investigation i am sure. susan, thanks very much. >>> president obama took the podium at a last-minute news conference today telling reporters all levels of law enforcement have handled this investigation in his words in an exemplary fashion. our crime and justice correspondent joe johns is taking a closer look at how federal officials are responding to the tragedy. he's got new information. joe? >> wolf, from a justice standpoint, this case is still really in its infancy but the director of national intelligence is already heading up an effort to try to determine whether any signals were missed that could have prevented the boston bombing. with the criminal investigation of the alleged boston bombers still in full swing including the search for possible accomplices, tuesday president obama defended the government's handling of tamerlan tsarnaev
and makes the life of both citizens and politicians impossible. >> talk about some of the programs, earlier this week congresswoman diane black a republican from tennessee tweeted this, "under president obama, food stamp enrollment has increased at ten times the rate of job creation." now we know the spending on entitlements entitlements that americans don't trust the government to make the investments. what is the alternative? >> the alternative is we have to figure out how to afford the government we want and want want the government we can afford and that means some consistency. lot of the issue is not with the national debt but our unwillingness on the republican side to pay for it with revenue increases, tax increases and on the democratic side the unwillingness to make some cuts in favor to entitlement programs. we need to do both. president obama in recent months has been offering a compromise saying yes, we will cut some of our favorite programs. you've got to raise some of the revenues on folks you don't want to raise it on. republicans have simply been saying no and then complaini
the budget priorities. the housing market is recovering. a lot of the opponents said the obama economy is going to be devastated are just wrong. one of the talking points of republicans as you know is food stamp enrollment has grown faster than job growth. the president has to say my policies have helped the job growth situation grow overall. until job growth improves, opponents say the president can't say anything. >> they're getting ready to ask the president questions. the shock was enormous to everyone in the area. would it be wise based on the experience you went through on 9/11 for the president to create some commission of inquiry to make sure we don't repeat any mistakes that may have occurred in the lead up to the boston bombings? >> i think it's an excellent question. why? because in the aftermath of these things is what happens is there's a rush for accountable. finger pointing. like the mirandizing with the communication between the fbi and russia. you lose sight of how to get better. one of the things about the 9/11 commission was is they looked at the systems that were in

the people that live here more than ever before. >> let's talk about the possible use of chemical weapons because president obama has called the use of such weapons a red line and that is a quote. but the president also says he still needs more proof. what exactly is he looking for? >> well, he is certainly looking for something that would address with some degree of certainty that these weapons were used and that they were used by bashar al assad forces and by bashar al ass assad's forces deliberately. one of the things that the obama administration has been saying is that they are not sure whether or not some of the chemical agents might be released by accident within the ranks of the syrian military, whether or not there is a break in the chain of custody and whether or not some of the weapons may have fallen into other hands. they want to be certain that it was bashar al assad's force whose used the weapons deliberately. right now the obama administration is not fully sure that that is the case. the syrian government is saying that it would never use these kinds of weapons against civ
and president obama can't change them. but it's legacy at risk. >> and yet, stephanie, we keep hearing the president talk about congress and frustrated with congress. no one in those articles and no one is going to defend congress. we know their approval rating is way worse than his. but what about this point? ultimately, the buck stops with you, dude. >> you know, i got to say, erin, even senator pat toomey said today, the republican who was behind the background check bill, he said people voted against it because they did not want to be seen as helping the president. this congress -- these republicans, erin, are provably and historically obstructionist. they just are. and i'm sorry, whatever maury and dowd wrote, we don't live in an erin sorkin liberal fantasy where sorkin gets to write everybody's lines, including the republicans. >> is there a point here, though? because i'm starting to wonder, look, you can blame him or not blame him, it kind of doesn't matter, but to dean's point, if he can't get anything done, what is the point of second term? >> well, first of all, there is a l

's talk about some of the programs. earlier this week diane black, a republican from tennessee tweeted this. under president obama, food stamp enrollment has increased at ten times the rate of job creation. now, we know the spending on entitlements is expanding at the expense of discretionary spending things like education and infrastructure, but americans don't trust the government to make those decisions. what is the alternative? >> we have to figure out how to afford the government we want and want the government we can afford. that means some consistency. a lot of the issue here is not with the national debt but our unwillingness on the republican side to pay for it with revenue increases, tax increases, and on the democratic side the unwillingness to make some cuts in favor of the entitlement programs. we need to do both. president obama in recent months has been offering a compromise saying yes, we will cut some of our favorite programs. you've got to raise some of the revenues on folks you don't want to raise it on. republicans have simply been saying no a
